Stop the Bleed Train the Trainers
December 2018- WVAA members are constantly training to increase their education and better their care for the community of Wethersfield. In this training members learned how to properly apply tourniquets and control bleeding with packing and direct pressure. This special training had another component added in, train the trainer. In partnership with St Francis Hospital, John Quinlavin, Marisol Feliciano and staff, members were certified to be able to hold Stop the Bleed courses throughout the community. The plan will be to have courses for town residents, high school students, and boy/girl scouts. For more information about upcoming classes please check out training center or contact the WVAA on our contact page. If you would like to host a stop the bleed course at your facility please also use the contact page of this website.
